WINDMILLING

Recommended Posts

GOOD DAY TO ALL.

DO THE 737NGX'S FAN BLADES WINDMILL ON THE RAMP (WHILST PARKED) AND, IF SO, UNDER WHAT WIND SPEED DOES THIS OCCUR?

I ASK BECAUSE THE FSLA320'S ENGINES SEEM TO WINDMILL MORE OFTEN AND UNDER LESS WINDY CONDITIONS (YES - I UNDERSTAND THEY'RE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AIRCRAFT).


REGARDS, MIKE

The FSL 320 is a couple years younger than the PMDG 737... you really can‘t compare them regarding the implementation of special features. I can‘t tell you for sure if they do or don‘t but I actually don‘t think they windmill. You certainly can‘t hear them though.

The fans on the real airplane will windmill when shut down if you have a good quartering tailwind, and usually only on the one side the wind is from.
